The old University Motel has seen better days. I am sure it was used for many years for folks coming to see the students at Wayne State. I am not sure of the current status, it seems as it has been for sale for several years. I did find a help wanted ad from 2005 so they were open then. There was an article from 2017 that indicated it was purchased for $600K by Midtown Detroit Inc. and restored. I am not sure if that project ever came to fruition. The place still looks cool in terms of architecture. There used to be quite a handsome mansion type place next door which is sadly gone.
